I had a dream that my boyfriend, just after had moved out painted the interior walls a purple color. I was telling him it was beautiful…though inside I was not liking it that much.
The other dream was before I moved out…I had tried to color my hair like always except this time instead of it coming out blond and straight … it was brown, matted, short and curly. I looked terrible and was not sure what to do about it.
Sue B.’s Interpretation:
Your dreams sound as if they are expressing your feelings and thoughts about the relationship with your boyfriend. When we end a relationship, we are also making internal changes and choosing what to let go of and what to hold onto within us that we associate with the relationship.
Before you moved out, you dreamt your hair was completely changed in a negative way- instead of blond and straight as you like it, your hair is brown, matted, short and curly. Hair often reflects how our thoughts and beliefs are affecting us. Since you were about to leave your boyfriend, it is likely you were dreaming of the negative thoughts and feelings you were having about the relationship. This was most likely bringing you down emotionally and creating conflict within yourself. You said you felt like in your dream you looked terrible and were not sure what to do about it. At the time you had this dream, you probably were becoming aware you were not happy, you needed a change, and were conscious of the negative affect staying in the relationship was having on you but you were not sure yet how to go about making the change.
The dream you had after you left your boyfriend may express how you were dealing with the adjustment of leaving your boyfriend and making this change. Purple is a color that symbolizes many things- spirituality, love, dignity, royalty, etc. What was interesting in this dream is that you lie to the boyfriend and tell him you like the purple paint when you actually do not. This dream could have been indicating to you that it is important for you to be honest with yourself about the relationship, the reasons why you left, and the importance of thinking for yourself instead of telling people what they want to hear.
